A cold-blooded killer is bushwhacking athletes preparing for the Winter Olympics.
Next, an Arctic whiteout and a madman's hit squad of ruthless mercenaries cut the Winter Games' mountain off from the rest of the world.
Bent on a grisly vendetta, the faceless psycho Mephisto sets his sights on Chief Superintendent Robert DeClercq. His plan includes slaughtering those closest to the Mountie. But that's just the kickoff to his cat-and-mouse doomsday scheme.
To stop that megalomaniac, the psycho-hunters of Special X must solve two whodunits, two howdunits, two locked room puzzles, and a dying message.
Let the do-or-die Winter Games begin!
